Mortal Kombat 1 - PS5: was
$69.99 now $40 at Walmart
Save $30 - It's been quite a year for fighting games, and if you're a fan of the genre, then Mortal Kombat 1 is well worth your time. We called it the "most mechanically deep and engaging entry in the franchise yet" in our review. Having only been released in September, there’s not been much time for NetherRealm Studios’ latest to drop in price, but this far surpasses Amazon's best-ever offer if you want to dive headfirst into some brutal battles.

Price check: Best Buy - $39.99
Elden Ring - PS4: was
$39.99 now $29.99 at Best Buy
Save $20 - Elden Ring may be fast approaching its second anniversary, but FromSoftware’s latest release is still one of the best open-world action games available to play right now. The thing that makes this bargain brilliant is that it comes with a free PS5 upgrade if you own Sony's current-gen console, so you don't need to pay extra for a PS5 version.
Price check: Target - $29.99
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor - PS5: was
$69.99 now $29.99 at Target
Save $40 - Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the latest in Cal Kestis’ thrilling saga, and received praise from critics (including us) when it launched earlier this year. For a 2023 hit, this is a phenomenal price that beats Amazon's best-ever offering by a significant margin. If you're yet to pick it up, this is an incredible deal, and even better, this same offer is available via Target on the Xbox Series X version (detailed further below).
Price check: Best Buy - $34.99
God of War Ragnarök - PS5: was
$69.99 now $34.99 at Best Buy
Save $35 - God of War Ragnarök - the sequel to 2018's God of War - was one of the most exciting games to release in 2022, winning numerous awards and achieving exceptionally high critical acclaim. Being a first-party PlayStation title, it's held its price pretty well, too, and just over a year on from its release, this is one of the best discounts we've ever seen on it. If you missed out last year, now's a great time to pick it up.
Price check: Walmart - $40
Final Fantasy 16 - PS5: was
$69.99 now $39.99 at Best Buy
Save $21 - The latest standalone title in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy 16 released later this year to overwhelmingly positive critical acclaim. We even gave it full marks in our review. It's since gone on to receive nominations for Best RPG, Best Narrative, and Best Score and Music at The Game Awards.
If you've been patiently waiting for it to drop in price, then it was certainly worth the wait, as this is on par with Amazon's best-ever offer.
Price check: Target - $39.99
Gran Turismo 7 - PS5: was
$69.99 now $39.99 at Best Buy
Save $30 - Gran Turismo 7 is arguably the best-looking racing game on PS5, and uses the DualSense controller's features to amp up the realism even further. While not the greatest offer we've seen on the game over Black Friday season, this is still a solid offer for anyone who's been looking to pick it up.
Price check: Walmart - $65.99
Black Friday video game deals - Nintendo Switch
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom - was
$69.99 now $56.97 at Walmart
Save $13 - Without a doubt, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the best Nintendo Switch games to date, and having only released in May this year, we’ve not seen that many huge deals on it so far. While this price narrowly beats Amazon’s best-ever offer, it's worth noting that it's still higher than it was earlier in the week. Even so, major new Switch game discounts tend to be quite rare, so this is definitely worth considering if you missed out previously.
Price check: Best Buy - $69.99
Fire Emblem Engage - was
$59.99 now $37.42 at Walmart
Save $22 - Whether you’re new to Fire Emblem or you’re a series veteran, Engage is a brilliant game that introduces a plethora of likable new characters alongside favorites of old. We gave it four out of five stars in our review and praised its "complex combat encounters" and "gorgeous animations." This is the best deal we've seen yet for this strategy game, so be sure to consider if you're yet to try it out.
Price check: Best Buy - $59.99
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe - was
$59.99 now $29.99 at Target
Save $30 - If you loved Kirby’s Return to Dream Land on the Nintendo Wii or missed out on the cute, classic adventure, this HD Nintendo Switch remaster is for you. Having released at the start of the year, this is the best price yet for this adorable adventure, and also a pretty surprising one given how new the game is. This is a perfect couch co-op game to play with family and friends, as long as you don't mind the fact that it won't pose much of a challenge for adult players.
Price check: Walmart - $30
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope Cosmic Edition - was
$39.99 now $14.99 at Best Buy
Save $25 - If you’re not familiar with the Mario + Rabbids games, you’ve been missing out. The criminally underrated turn-based strategy series is a crossover between Nintendo’s famous red-hatted plumber and Ubisoft’s Rabbids, and features engaging battles amongst the general Rabbid silliness.
What's more, this edition of the game comes with the 'Galaxy Prestige Collection' downloadable content, which boasts three exclusive weapon skins to use in-game.
Price check: Walmart - $34.77
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - was
$59.99 now $49.75 at Amazon
Save $10 - The latest - and arguably greatest - in the Super Smash Bros. series truly lives up to its name, with every single fighter from the series' history available to play, as well as a whole host of new ones. For fans of fighting games, this is an unmissable deal that beats Amazon's previous all-time best offer.
Price check: Best Buy - $55.99
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - was
$59.99 now $30 at Walmart
Save $29.99 - Breath of the Wild may be fast approaching its seventh birthday (no, I can't believe it either), but it's a Nintendo Switch must-have for a reason. This open-world Zelda game is the direct predecessor to 2023's Tears of the Kingdom, so if you played the latest action-adventure title and want to see what happened first in the story, this is a phenomenal deal that's cheaper than Amazon's best-ever offering. It's worth noting, however, that currently only the digital version is in stock at this price.
Price check: Best Buy - $39.99
Persona 5 Royal - was
$59.99 now $24.99 at Best Buy
Save $35 - There's a reason why gamers cite Persona 5 Royal as one of the best RPGs of all time - it really is that good. It's also an incredibly long game, with average playthroughs expected to last around 100 hours. As such, the Nintendo Switch really is the ideal platform to play it if you'd like to chip away at it on the train, bus, or on flights. This beats Amazon's best price by some distance, too, so it's a fantastic bargain.
Price check: Walmart - $34.99
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - was
$59.99 now $47.99 at Amazon
Save $12 - Even more than six years on from its release, there's no doubt that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the ultimate Switch racing game. While not Amazon's best ever price, this is still a great discount on a perfect game for the holidays.
Price check: Best Buy - $48.99
Black Friday video game deals - Xbox
Resident Evil 4 - Xbox Series X: was
$59.99 now $30 at Amazon
Save $30 - One of this year’s most exciting horror games, this is Amazon’s lowest ever price on the Resident Evil 4 remake. We gave the modern version of Capcom’s 2005 classic a five out of five in our review, so if you’re yet to pick it up, it certainly has our recommendation.
Price check: Best Buy - $39.99
Diablo 4 Cross-Gen Bundle: was
$69.99 now $49.99 at Amazon
Save $20 - Diablo 4 is another of this year’s biggest games, and with continuous updates and new seasons, it’s never going to be a bad time to dive in. This version of the game can be used on either Xbox One or Series X|S, and is narrowly higher than Amazon's best ever price.
